Nuclear forward scattering of synchrotron radiation is an analogue of
classical Mössbauer spectroscopy in the time domain. The observation of hyperfine interactions from Mössbauer nuclei allows the study of the structure, valence, magnetism and dynamics of the surrounding solid through a local probe. The use of a synchrotron beam to excite Mössbauer transitions opens the possibility to perform unique experiments with hyperfine spectroscopy under extreme conditions. After a short introduction to nuclear resonant scattering and examples of state of the art experiments, particular attention shall be given to the development of nuclear forward scattering in pulsed high magnetic fields.
